  • Our Shangri-La

    "A family group of five adults, we were thrilled with our week-long Villa La Vista experience. The Villa is beautiful, and we so enjoyed hearing the comforting sounds of the ocean surf at all times of day. We happily spread out into the three spacious bedrooms (one in a separate apartment), each with its private ocean-view patio, and air-conditioning. We gathered in the main living area to enjoy the comfy chairs and sofa for reading and wifi time, or we moved on to the ocean-view patio, which everyone sought out from dawn ‘til dusk. That’s where we watched a sloth hanging out for twenty-four hours on a nearby tree; and that’s where the squirrel and white-faced monkeys visited us. Squirrel monkeys are not to be missed—they play like kittens! The kitchen was convenient and well-equipped, although we mainly prepared breakfast and lunch, as eating out was fun at the many nearby restaurants which we could easily walk to. With vegetarians in our group, we loved Café Milagro, which turned into one of our favorite spots for an occasional breakfast as well as dinner. Fred’s provided a fabulous view of the spectacular sunsets. The Villa, which is located on a dirt road, is very quiet and private—so private that it was possible to skinny dip in our own “plunge pool.” The pool is beautifully surrounded by flowering plants such as the magnificent hanging “lobster claw,” and it was our go-to spot for a fast refresher whenever we got too warm, for instance when we had made the walk back up the hill after a swim in the ocean. The ocean is just ten minutes down the road from the Villa; we couldn’t believe what felt like our own private white sand beach, with excellent surf! We were also thrilled to find trees lining the beach, so that we didn’t have to stay in the sun. Getting set up to stay at the Villa was made very easy by its owner, Nancy, who provided fast feedback and excellent information—everything one could want. The concierge, Geralyn, couldn’t have been more helpful, before and during our visit, from setting up tours to providing a birthday cake to calling cabs when our Spanish was insufficient. We were also grateful for the excellent attentions of the housekeeper, Lidette, and the groundskeeper, Chino. It was so very nice not to have to do laundry (unless we preferred to do it ourselves) and occasionally to have fresh sheets. Our only complaint? We should have stayed longer - and we will next year!"

  • Amazing,Fantastic,Spectacular

    "Dear Ken and Kim, thank you so much for allowing us into your home, Casa Pura Paz is named perfectly. These 5 days Betsy and I spent with you were absolutely the most relaxing least stressful days for us in year's. For anyone considering visiting the Manuel Antonio area, I would strongly recommend Pura Paz! Every aspect of my visit exceeded expectations. The house was exactly as it looked online, except it looks 10 times better in person. You can be as active as you want to be or just stare at the view off the deck all day. The national park is a great outing, but you will see all the wildlife right off the porch!The scenery of the surrounding area is nothing short of spectacular, there are too many outstanding restaurants to name and all of them are minutes from the house. One of the many highlights of our visit was the day trip with Jose, having a casual lunch on his farm provided a real glimpse into the culture of Costa Rica. We will be repeat visitors! Thank you again. Charlie Keiger Charlotte, NC"

  • We loved Jungle Creek!

    "Our family of four really enjoyed our stay in the 2 bedroom Dos Palmas Villa. Paula was really helpful with arranging an itinerary and booking activities before we arrived. She and Clark were not home during our stay, but Ellie and her husband were staying on the property. Ellie was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We enjoyed horseback riding with Rancho Tipica don Juan, ziplining with Canopy Safari, and a guided tour of the national park with Pablo. The typical Costa Rican lunches with the horseback riding and ziplining tours were very good. We also enjoyed eating dinners out in Manuel Antonio at El Wagon, Aqua Azul, and Baja Roja. We made breakfast in our condo every morning and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our boys loved playing in the little pool at the resort and cooled off in it every afternoon. Thank you for a great stay!"
